September 20th hosted Peet & Lashe’s most special wedding day. I was the privileged photographer that was set to capture their memories using imagery on this glorious occasion.
When Luke and I got to the hotel in Balito we could immediately pick up the that there was a buzz of excitement in the air. We saw our good friend Danie Bester at the hotel and shortly after that we were met by Willie (father of the bride) and his entourage. After being exposed to some of Willie & the “Manne”‘s humour ( lets not forget about Willies hilarious home videos) we knew we were in for some solid laughs and a good time. Next we were off to Salty’s for an authentic Durban bunny, what a treat! It was clear that we were among “lekker” people and I couldn’t wait for the wedding day so that I could get my camera out and be a part of their special day.
On the morning of the wedding we were all relieved to see the sun coming out to dry up the previous day’s rain. What followed was a heart-felt celebration of love, life and commitment. Peet made for handsome and eager groom and Lashe was a picture perfect bride that had one of her biggest day’s laying ahead of her. Just as expected there were loads laughs, tears & cheers to go around for the rest of the day and I think it’s safe to say that fun was had by all.
